On behalf of the Volunteering Tasmania Board and staff, I am delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Lisa Schimanski as the new Chief Executive Officer of Volunteering Tasmania.
Lisa comes to us with a wealth of experience and professional expertise.
For the past two and a half years she has worked at the Tasmanian Council of Social Service (TasCOSS) as the Manager, Strategic Partnerships and Projects. Much of her TasCOSS work has been deeply embedded within Tasmanian communities and within Volunteer Involving Organisations. Lisa has also supported a number of advocacy and policy campaigns that impact on the lives of those in our community.
Lisa has been and still is an enthusiastic volunteer for a range of community, sporting and school organisations, she understands first-hand the importance of volunteers for a whole range of activities that many Tasmanians rely upon, as well as the strength volunteering gives to organisations, clubs and the community.
Lisa is committed to contemporary practice, and working closely with government, organisations and volunteers in Tasmania to celebrate and promote the economic, cultural and social benefits of volunteering to all Tasmanians.
Lisa will be commencing her new role on 8 October 2018, we hope you will join us in welcoming Lisa.
